Femise is the Euro-Mediterranean Forum of Institutes of Economic Sciences, a Euromed network established in June 2005, and gathering more than 90 members of economic research institutes. 

This brief focuses on environmental taxes and green public procurement (GPP). These two environmental policy instruments differ in political viability and in the impact they have on consumers and producers. 

Video: Vera Danilina participated in the FEMISE "Med Change Makers", a series of interviews launched in 2018. In her policy brief, she provides a comparative analysis of the effectiveness of environmental taxes and GPP and reveals the opportunities for harmonized environmental policy between countries. Her results suggest specific implications for environmental collaboration between EU countries and those of the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). See the interview to know more.
